If you haven't yet visited Keanes Point in Peppermint Grove, put it top of your list of things to do in Perth, this place is just beautiful! Located along the beautiful Swan River, only 10 mins drive south west of Perth. There is a great playground located here, with one side perfect for toddlers and the other side with bigger slides and climbing ropes for the bigger kids.
It's well shaded with shade sails in summer and there is lots of natural shade, so it's well shaded all year and all day long. The road it's on is really quiet and there is a good amount of parking around the playground area (can imagine it might be a bit difficult finding a park on a busy day though)
The toddler playground section... my 3yo loved the little bus at the bottom!
Bigger kids playground!
There is a unisex & disabled toilet right next to the playground under a small sheltered area that has a table & chairs and power, making this a great place for a family gathering or birthday party.
Keane's Point is a popular spot to see dolphins, we were lucky enough to see about 5-6 dolphins, they came right up to where the boats are moored near the shore. So make sure you have a look out to Freshwater Bay to see if you can see any!
Keanes Point is also a great spot for a swim or a splash. The beach is sandy there are even a few shells, and the water is very clear and calm.
Just across from the carpark is a great cafe - Cappuccino By The River. It's a beautiful spot to enjoy a coffee or light meal. There is a grassed area at the front where they can run around or sit and enjoy an icecream. The cafe does not have eftpos so make sure you take cash. There is also a toilet block close to the cafe.
Further along from the cafe, away from the playground is some great beach area, which is a great spot to spend the day enjoying the water. We saw a family doing some stand up paddle boarding here.
A picnic and a play at Keane's Point Peppermint Grove is the perfect way to spend the day by the river. You can enjoy a walk along the river, a splash if it's warm enough and of course lots of play time on the two fantastic playgrounds.
What to Bring: picnic lunch or bbq, hats, sunscreen, bathers & towels if you are going to have a swim, sand pit toys, picnic rug, cash for the cafe, basketball or netball, ball to kick around.
